Scholarship Application: Story Workshop Fall 2019




Our goal is to make the Story Workshop a realistic option for people who have been unable to attend due to cost. Scholarships will be offered based on demonstrated financial need with a focus on diverse voices, people of color, and those who have been historically underrepresented as makers of public media. Qualification for the Scholarship is considered once the applicant is accepted to the Workshop. For now, Scholarship funds are available only to people living in the U.S.

Transom is prepared to pay one or more partial Scholarships, and one full Scholarship, if an accepted applicant requires it. A full scholarship includes tuition, housing, group meals, travel to and from Woods Hole and a possible stipend.  

Scholarship applicants are required to complete both a Workshop application and a Scholarship application. Both have the same deadline. We ask you to complete and submit your application to the Workshop first. You can find general information about the Workshop here and your can visit our FAQ here. All applications and materials are due on May 31st at 11:59 P.M. EST. If you have any questions along the way, you can reach us at info [at] transom [dot] org.
